A loan of $400 helped to buy perfumes and a bundle of children's clothing.

Marilen's story

Marilen resides in the neighborhood called Villa Venezuela, a marginalized section of Managua. She is the mother of a three-year-old daughter. Her husband helps her with everything and works as a driver.

Marilen sells cosmetics. For this reason, she is requesting a loan to invest in more products, such as perfumes for women and men, since she currently has little inventory to offer to her customers. In addition, she wants to experiment by purchasing a bundle of children’s clothing to sell in hopes that this will help her small family get ahead and enable her to assist her husband with the household expenses.
